What song should hail the welcome hour
That sees the nation waiting stand,
To place the emblems of its power
Within the hero's faithful hand?
Resounding notes of martial tame,
Mix with the patriot's full acclaim,
Without surcease ;
While gentler strains the breezes bear
On vernal wings, and everywhere
Rises the sentiment and prayer,
"Let us have Peace !"
Enough that War's fell rage is spent,
And freedom still survives secure ;
Her statute loftier and unbent,
Her strength increased, her vesture pure
The fame his country well bestows
Upon the chief who crushed her foes
All climes increase ;
But nobler rings o'er land and main,
And nobler echoes back again,
The manly, Christian, sweet refrain,
There, from New England's busy mills ;
From where the Mississippi flows ;
From where the bursting cotton tills
The golden airs with mimic snows ;
From where the gleaming nuggets shine
Close neighbors of the fruitful vine—
They will not cease ;
The countless voices raised to greet
The soldier in the ruler's seat,
The chorus ever to repeat,
" Let us have Peace !"
110 W IT WAS DONE.
Church Torrington was perhaps the
greatest coward in the city of New York.
Don't misunderstand us, gentle reader—
physically speaking, our young hero was
brave as Bayard, dauntless as Cuair de
Lion. But it was where the fair sex were
concerned that Mr. Torrington became a
poltroon. A gentle glance from a pair of
blue eyes was enough to throw him into a
cold perspiration at any time.
As one by one of the companions of his
boyhood and early youth vanished out of
tile path of batchelorhood and entered into
the Promised Land of matrimony, Church
Torrington viewed them with a not un
% Ls 5

" . g
"Ilow the mischief did they ever mus
ter up courage to do it?" was his inter
And Harry Leslie, a wag of flirty, who
always had a knack of finding out every
body else's weak points, said:
All of that set married except Church
Torrington—and he'll be a bachelor all
the days of his life, because he hasn't got
courage to ask any girl to have him. I
don't know though, either," he added re
flectively. " Waft until Leap Year comes
around again, there may be a chance for
him then!" •
Nevertheless, in the thee of all these
obstacles, Church Torrington was in love.
Miss Violet Purple was as pretty . and
blooming a little lassie as ever tripped '
down the sunny side of Broadway, under
threadlace parasol, on a June afternoon.
She was very plump and rather small, ;
with blue gray eyes, eyebrows like twin
arches of jet, shining; chestnut hair, and
a skin like white velvet, just finished with
the softest pink on either dimpled cheek.
And she. had a way of carrying her head
piquantly onfone side, and spoke with the •
slightest possible of lisps, and always wore
a rose in her hair, and was altogether pre
cisely the sort of a little girl a man's fancy
would be apt to conjure up, when he
thought of the gloom of his solitary home.
Violet Purple was born to be married—
you couldn't think of her as an old maid ;
any more than you could think of straw
berries without cream, or a satin slipper
without a dainty foot to fit it—and when- ;
ever she thought of the probability of that
catastrophe, a face like the moustached ;
physiognomy of Mr. Church Torrington
outlines itself through the misty vapors of
her day dream.
But Mr. Church was so dreadfully bash
ful—hie wouldn't propose—and poor little
Violet was nearly at her wits' end, what
to do in this dire perplexity. A girLof
any delicacy can't very won ask a man to
have her, and Violet had done everything
else! *lie had smiled sweetlyon him
gives him no end of rosebuds oat of her
WI bouquets, and had "Pkilopcened”
with hint, and sent him embroidered cigar
comes, and returned a gentle pressure when
he had ventured to aqueexe her hand at
parting, and what, we ask the reader,
could a girl do more?
And atilt in spite of all this, Mr. Tor
rington persisted in keeping his love to
himself. In vain Aunt tiarepta took her
work upstairs, and left the drawing-room
free to twilight and the lovers,—in vela
Violet put on her prettiest dresses and
curled her hair with a special eye to
Church Torrington's taste. And old Mr.
Purple—whose name wean 't a bad descrip
tion of the general hue of his face, began
to wonder "what the deuce young Tor
rington meant by coming here so much
and keeping better men away?" and hint
ed very broadly at the propriety of Violet's
being more gracious to a certain banker,
a friend of his, who was supposed to be
specially attracted by the blue gray eyes
and the jet-arched brows.
And little Violet took to crying of
nights on her lace-edged pillows, and de
dining a second plate of lobster-salad at
(limier; and Aunt tiarepta, a tall, square,
maiden lady, who had only recently come
up from the country to take charge of her
brother's household, scarce knew what to

"Love's proper hue.''
"Then why on earth don't he propose
and have done with it?"
" I don't know, aunt." This time in a
sort of despairing accent.
Miss Sarepta Purple set herself to un
tangle this Gordian knot of circumstances
as she would have charged at a " snarl”
in her skeins of mixed yaigt; and when
Miss Sarepta set herself about a thing, she
was generally in the habit of accomplish-
" I'll go and see him myself," was the
result of a long day of meditation on Miss
Sarepta's part; "and I won't let Violet
know about it neither."
Mr. Church Torrington sat in his leath
er-covered easy chair looking out a diffi
cult case in "l'stoppels," when his clerk
announced " A lady;" and on turning ab
ruptly round, he encountered the gaze of
Miss Sarepta Purple's spectacled orbs.
Ile colored scarlet as he dragged forth a
chair and stammered out some incoherent
sentence or other—for was she not 'Vio
let's aunt—the aunt of the fair damsel
whom he worshipped afar off and in
Thank'ee!' said Miss Purple, deposit
ing herself by the chair as one might set
down a heavy trunk, A-" I've come on bu
" Because," said Miss Sarepta, edging
her chair a little nearer that of the young
lawyer, " I think it's high time this busi
ness was settled!"
" What business?"
" What business?" echoed Miss Purple,
with a belligerent to of her head; "as
if the man didn't know well enough what
1 was talking about—why, getting marri
ed to be sure!"
Mr. Torrington grew a shade or two
paler. Was it possible that this ancient
maiden still contemplated the probability
of matrimony? Had she then selected
him for her victim? He looked at the
back window—it opened ou a blind alley
which led nowhere; he glanced at the door
—but Miss Purple's gaunt form effectual
ly debarred that means of egress. No—
there was nothing but to sit still and face
the worst that fate had in store for him.
"You see" went on Miss Sarepta, "I
ain't blind iii am getting onin years, and
I can see as well as anybody what you
mean by coming so often to our house.
But, still, I think you'd ought to ha' spoke
out likr, a man. Pm willing—and don't
s'pose my brother 'll object, as you seem
to be able to keep a wife!"
"You—you are very kind!" stuttered
"Is it to be yes or no—about the mar
riage, I mean?"
" I shall be most happy, I am sure!"
fluttered our miserable hero.
"Spoke like a man. It's what I knew
you meant all the time," cried Aunt
Sarepta, rising to her feet and actually
depositing an ocular demonstration meant
for a kiss on Church's forehead. "I knew
I should like you, my boy!"
Church startled. This was not exactly
etiquette, but the whole matter was really
so strange and unprecedented that he
hardly knew what to think.
"And when will you come around to
Brother Jacob's and tell the folks all
about it—for I suppose you'd like to tell
them yourself? This evening?"
"Y—yes, if you say so!"
" It's as good a time as any I s' pose.
Of course you won't mention that said
anything to you about it? I'd rather it
should seem unstudied."
"Naturally enough!" thought poor
Church. But he Tromised, with a sickly
smile; and parted from Miss Purple, al
moot shrinking from the vigorous grasp
of the hand which she unhesitatingly be
stowed upon him.
No sooner was Church Torrington alone
than the full horror of his position rushed
upon him. What had he done? To what
had he committed himself?
"It serves me right.," he muttered,
grinding his teeth, " when I could have
won the love of the sweetest little fairy
that the sun ever shone on. It was simply
idiotic of me to allow a middle-aged ter
magant to take possession of me as though
I were a cooking stove or a second-hand
clock! And she'll marry me, and I shall

dear, dear! this is a terrible scrape for a

help for it now. If I were to back out,
she'd sue me for breach of promise; if I
were to cut for Australia, she would
follow me there, as sure as Fate! I'm a
gone individual—a lost community!"
And Church Torrington proceeded
straight to the brown-stone mansion where
dwelt the inexorable Serepta.
Lo and behold! as he rang the door
bell, Miss Purple herself opened the door,
and mysteriously beckoned him in.
"I saw you coming," she said, iu a
low, eager tone. " I've been on the look
out. Excuse me, my dear, but I really
feel as if I must kiss you once more.
We're going to be relations, you know!"
" Relations! I should think so!" groan
ed Church Torrington, taking the kiss as
a child would a quinine powder.
Miss Sarepta patted him on the shoul
"Then go in," she said, nodding mys
teriously towards the door beyond.
"Go in—where?" stammered our be

"To be sure it was! Whom did you
suppose I meant? 3k?"
This last suggestion, hazarded as the
wildest improbability by Miss Serepta,
called the guilty color up into Church's

• "but I've been a stupid blockhead; Don't
be.angry, as you said we're going to be

And lie took the spinster in his arms,
and bestowed upon her a kiss which made
its predecessor appear but the shadow and
Fliost of kisses—a kiss which sounded as
if Mr. Church Torrington wont it.
"Do behave yourself!" cried Miss Sa
"Yes, I'm going to," said Church, and
he walked straight into the drawing room,
where little Violet was dreaming over an
unread book of poems. She started as he
"Mr. Torrington, is it you!"
"Yes, it is 1," said Church, inspired
with new coup ge• " Violet, darling, I
love you—will you consent to be my wife?"
"Are you in earnest, Church?"
" In earnest? it's what I've been want
ing to say to you for the last six months,
but I have never dared to venture. Come,
you will not send me way without an
answer. Say yes, darling."
" Yes," Violet answered so fitintly,
that only true love's ear could have dis
cerned the fidtering monosyllable. And
Church Torrington ft:lt as if he were the
luckiest fellow in all the great metropolis
When aunt Sarepta came in, looking
very unconscious, to light the gas, Church
insisted upon another kiss, greatly to that
,For you know very well, tome
he said, "ynal ,yet me ttle example."
And aunt Sarepta did not look ?Try an

So they were married with all due

old maiden aunt was in securing her hap
